Solutions

Chapter 1.1, Problem 9E
To determine

To state: the property of real numbers used in the given relation.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 9E

Associativeproperty over addition of real numbers.

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

A relation is given as

  x+(2y+3z)=(x+2y)+3z

Calculation:

Associative property over addition of real numbers:

If three real numbers are added then the result does not depend on the order of addition.

Suppose a, b, and c are three real numbers, Associative property says that

  a+(b+c)=(a+b)+c

Therefore, in x+(2y+3z)=(x+2y)+3z , Associative property over addition of real numbers has been used.
